SUCHTHAUS - Releases Mayhem Tribute Video

Norway's Suchthaus, the band that defies genre type casting and for whom visuals play as big a role as the music itself, have released a tribute to the iconic black metal band Mayhem in the form of a video cover of the track "Life Eternal", from what is probably Mayhem's most famous album, 1994's De Misteriis Dom Sathanas. The cover features Suchthaus members Spacebrain on vocals, Ingvar the Last Viking on guitars, Fruen on the organ, and Hellhammer, who is of course himself one of the original members of Mayhem, on drums. Whilst it may not come as a surprise that a band has recorded a Mayhem cover, it is, in this case, more appropriate than the usual run of the mill tribute, given that Suchthaus founder Spacebrain, is the man behind many of Mayhem's most recognisable stage sets. A renowned sculptor, as well as a musician, Spacebrain had this to say about the tribute: "Mayhem has survived hell for 30 years, and I was fortunate to play a part during a few of those years, touring through Europe with the art of Spacebrain from 2000-2006. This is a period of my life I will never forget, neither the good nor the bad experiences, and therefore Suchthaus decided to put in some hard work to try to recreate the soundtrack that got stuck in my head: "Life Eternal". It's far from a straight cover, but our vision was a way of thanking the men who let me be a part of their life (in alphabetical order) Atilla, Blasphemer, Hellhammer, Maniac, Necrobutcher."
In other news... Suchthaus is currently working putting the finishing touches on the band's sophomore album entitled Motorbrain, which, once finished, will be released on Suchthaus' own label Rollabigone. Guests on the album include Shining founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth. Link
